#flashbackfriday America’s Next Top Model Season Five Finale

Last night I attended the finale of America’s Next Top Model Cycle Five. I’m a reluctant fan of the show. I believe the girls that become the second runner-up are the ones that should win. I am a fan of Elyse, Kahlen, Mercedes, Shandi, and Shannon. This season was all about Bre Scullark. Bre was like the girls I grew up with in Chicago. Fabulous, a touch ghetto, pretty, and oh so real. Whenever she was on screen, I was riveted. Though I didn’t see a win in Bre’s future, she made it to the final three. Robbed. Victory snatched from her grasp. I love how she kept it real until the very end. When she lost, the heels came off, and the glasses went back on. You must never forget in your travels who you are. She did not. Tonight my mission was to meet her. I did, and she was just as I hoped she would be. Sublime.

I just had a blast back at my old home Fox News Good Day LA chatting all things fashion for the 2016 Emmy Awards. Loved working with the outrageous Emily Loftiss! She was fun! Our producer Michelle goes “I knew you’d be great together! She’s the White, female you!” Click the link here and tell me what you think!

Clearly we had fun!

Big Brother. The Gift That Keeps on Giving.

stoli

Just another day in the life of an ex-Reality Star.

Uber Driver: You look kinda familiar.
Me: Perhaps we’ve driven together before? (Not having it this morning. Don’t test me.)
Driver: No… That’s not it. Do you do television?
Me: (Vaguely…) Yes. I do.
Driver: You’re the guy from Big Brother!
Me: Yes. I did Big Brother ages ago (in a tone clearly meant to end convo).
At this point he misses turn heading towards expressway as his Google nav points out.
Driver: Big fan. Correct me if I’m wrong. You’re the guy who was on the block & didn’t use the Veto.
(At this point he turns onto a side street which is blocked. He now has to either backtrack (my suggestion) or go a mile out of the way adding 10 mins to my trip. Guess which option he chooses. I’m trying to catch a plane.)
Me: Yes… 20 years ago. (Clearly perturbed. And it was only 14 years ago.)
Driver: (Disregarding my suggestion & directions to expressway) I gotta ask you, why didn’t you use it?
Me: Sir that was 20 years ago & I don’t rehash my past with strangers. Can you focus on getting me to the airport?
Silence.
My 1 regret, ever, is doing a reality show.

If the White House Correspondents Dinner is Nerd Prom then the annual Metropolitan Museum Gala is definitely Fashion Prom. Here I am for the 3rd year in a row on Fox News’ Good Day LA chatting the good, the bad, the UGLY and the basic!

REPOST! THESE ARE A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS…

Looker. This movie starred Susan Dey (all early ’80s hot), Albert Finney (surprisingly old & mis-cast), Leigh Taylor-Young & James Coburn (crushin on James big time!). My fave line from any movie ever is uttered by Playboy Playmate of the Year Teri Welles: “They’re killing all the perfect girls.” Gosh…How many times have I uttered that line! This movie is just what the late ’70s/early ’80s were about: feathered hair, models w/A cups in jumpsuits w/o bras, blush that’s like a bruise and really cheesy fashion photo shoots. And I loved every contrived minute of it. I still have a fashion hard-on for it. Looker, Eyes of Laura Mars and the original Stepford Wives. The fashion styling in those movies is perfection.



Cupcakes from Maganolia Bakery.

Handsets for cellphones from Phobile. My roommie got me this for Christmas. Thank you E for giving me something else to walk around L.A. looking crazy with. I think it’s retro-chic!


Francesco Clemente. The artist. Moves me in ways I can’t explain. His work is raw and beautiful. J’adore Francesco (yeah, I know I’m mixing French and Italian).
